On Easter Sunday Evening the team were visitors to Hazelwood to take on the same opposition in the Division 2 league.

Missing a few regulars it was always going to be an uphill battle. The team started sharply with Matthew Cullen in good form early on but we failed to reep the reward due to wayward shooting. An improved performance from the final was helped greatly with Kevin McDonnell's presence in the team again. The opening half was a great battle and the home side led 0-7 to 0-5 at half time. 

The second half began better for the home side as they dispatched scores easily putting them in a 5 point lead but we battled back well reducing the lead to 2 points. A Pat Naughton effort struck the crossbar when a goal was needed and shortly after this there was a very long delay as an injury to a Calry player required assistance of the ambulance. On the resumption Calry found an opening in our rear guard and hit the net.

Final score was 1-13 to 0-13 in what was a spirited performance.
